    Buzz Capacity?

    I recently got a Rockhopper from Red Oxx, and it's a nice bag. The only problem is that the ergonomics are a little off for me. Almost like it was designed for someone 6' tall, not 5'6" like myself. Regardless, it holds a fair amount of stuff.

    Which leads me to the Buzz. I am thinking about ordering it to see if it would be a better fit. However, it would need to hold, among other things:

    - cycling shoes
    - Baseball hat
    - fleece
    - iPad + charger
    - Sunglasses case
    - A few kids things (a toy or two, sweater)
    - Sunscreen

    Would the Buzz work for this application? Also, I don't see as much love here for the Buzz as for many of the other bags. Any specific complaints?


    (Loving my Tri-Star, ID, Packing Cubes, etc.)

    I've posted before about what I can fit into my Buzz. There's a padded divider (meant to protect a 15" laptop) in the large compartment, and it doesn't come out so you don't get one big bag -- you get two littlish ones that work really well for flat items.

    Plus, while I love my bag, I hardly ever use it slung across my back -- the single strap is not really made for a woman shaped as I am -- preferring to carry it on a shoulder much like a purse. It works well for me, but you might like something like the Synapse for bulky items (I'm considering getting one for my camera gear...)
